Moving to the Tri-Cities, WA? U-Haul is not your best bet…

By in Buyers with 0 Comments

apparently not, anyway.  The Los Angeles Times is doing a series on U-Haul.  Important pieces of evidence they’ve uncovered so far include no lug nuts on some wheels and failing emergency breaks.  Moving is stressful enough without discovering you could die on your way to your new destination.

I used U-Haul plenty of times, and the only negative personal experience I had was when a cockroach stowed away in my china cabinet.  My eagle-eyed stepmother spotted the critter before it could breed and a crisis was averted.

Anyone out there with a personal U-Haul story to share?  Near miss or best-move-of-your-life escapade?  Do tell…

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
